Lamson reels have infinite potential. A legend continually in the making, the Litespeed is one of the most popular and influential fly reels of the last two decades. One of the world’s lightest full drag reels—infinitely durable—the Litespeed 5 is engineering alchemy.
In this new version, you get: A higher retrieve rate. An improved ergonomic drag knob for better grip. Plus a stronger, more structurally-sound frame and narrower spool for improved line handling. The drag housing is also integrated into the frame to save weight and decrease overall width.
The Litespeed 5 is coated in a new corrosion resistant shield called Micralox—exclusive to Waterworks-Lamson in the fly-fishing realm. Beyond amazing.
